I'm 11 years old and I have already witnessed 3 events involving ghosts in my house. It was about two weeks from Christmas. It was really late at night, because I couldn't go to sleep. I looked up out my window, and saw something. It was an orange mist... WITH EYES. I was scared to death, but didn't make a sound. It was creepy, because it stared at me. I just got as low as I could, hoping it would go away. It did, but then something worse happened. I blinked, and in it's place was another ghost. Don't say this is a "figment of imagination" because I pinched and punched myself to make sure I was awake. The ghost was a person. He seemed old-fashioned, about early 1900s, I'd say. All of him either had a pale tint, or his clothes were pale and so was his skin. He was carrying something, I think it was a gun or an axe. It was just staring across the room. It was the last thing I saw before I went to sleep.
Two years later, 2007, late January, I woke up and saw something else. Something in a dark red robe was walking toward the foot of my bed, toward a table. It put its hand on the table like it picked something up or put something down, and vanished. I again made sure I was awake.
